Publisher's Summary

The War of the Rebellion is over, and the members of the American Gun Club, bored with inactivity, look around for a new project. At last they have it: "We will build the greatest projectile the world has ever seen and make the moon our 38th state!" When From the Earth to the Moon was published in 1865, it was regarded as pure fantasy. Who could imagine a rocket that would carry men and animals through space? Today, like so many of Jules Verne's prophecies, space travel is a reality. Here's a fun adventure story that shows how Verne, with foresight that is at times almost eerily accurate, envisioned a trip to the moon.

Good if you like numbers

This book has so many calculations in it it’s hard to follow by just listening to it. It would be good for architects and engineers and people who like math in general. The narrator’s voice is flat and monotonous so I fell asleep three times while listening to this.

Lacking

While the writing is fantastic, the story really leaves the leader disappointed. A lot of build up for a very brief and unfulfilling ending.
